Act dangerously

13 Feb



Romantic that I am, I have a softish spot for Valentine’s Day.

(Although the Dominant in me objects strongly).

Not so much for the exchange of cards, gifts and supper between those who are already lovers.  I can see the romance, the affirmation, the enchantment and the intimacy – I have fallen under its amorous spell often enough. Yet one can also almost smell the commercial cynicism at this time of the year. It sucks.

No, I think what really makes February the fourteenth special is that it provides almost-strangers the perfect excuse and the ideal opportunity to flirt outrageously.

And to act dangerously.

This is not a new post, but it has become almost a Valentine’s Day tradition for me to repost it around this time of year, to remind readers to be bold and to have fun.

    Actually, this is about the best interpretation of Valentine’s Day that I have come across. A reason to flirt outrageously and act dangerously with near strangers. Flowers and romantic dinners… overrated 😂.

    So now we know your weak point….. giving you gifts! To take away your dominance, expensive jewelry, a car, clothing, might as well just give you a million dollars for you to spend and you won’t be dominant for a day, damn you are quite expensive to be with. I hope my lottery ticket is the winner this time
    Happy Valentines gentess.

      This comment makes absolutely no sense. It lacks any context whatsoever. And, charly boy, if you read my blog without letting your cock get diverted by paintings of women, you would realise that I am a boringly heterosexual male. So fuck off.
